Tasting Note:

A lifting, fresh nose of aromatic red fruit and alpine herbs. Silkier than the sterner San Rocco, boasting sensual red berry and cherry fruit mixed with notes of wild herb, undergrowth, and a hint of salted blood orange. A charmer. 3000 bottles were made. The Azelias have one big block of 2.5ha here, but only 3500 bottles are produced as the Cru bottling. The wine is aged in one big barrel for 30 months. Most of the rest of the wine is declassified and blended into the Barolo. Originally, they rented the plot and they replanted it entirely while under rental agreement. They then bought ten years later. This was thirty years ago. It has been Luigi Scavino’s baby from start to finish. 2016 was the first vintage vinified separately. The soils are a blend of clay, limestone and chalk.
